The Socialist 25 January 2017, Organise to beat Trumpism, austerity and capitalism

spotMillions on women's marches around the world: Build a mass movement against Trumpism, austerity and capitalism

The huge turnouts to the anti-Trump 'women's marches' on 21 January shocked even the organisers. It is now vital and urgent that that this is used as a launchpad to build a sustained, democratic, international movement with a strategy to win and a vision of a socialist alternative.

Socialist readers' comments and reviews

spotEd Balls: 'Speaking Out' for capitalism

Non-fiction review - Speaking Out: Ed Balls elicits sympathy for his battle against his stammer. His view that anyone who disagrees with him is a communist will probably elicit less sympathy.
